Peachy color, exceptionally pink for a beer. Very thick head that quickly reduces to light to moderate lacing at first that was completely gone by the time the beer was half empty. Smells like a gose: tart, salty. Only slightly sweet. It’s pretty tangy with not much flavor. I suppose I detect just a hint of coriander and hibiscus, which is good for someone who’s not particularly fond of the latter. Really a pretty basic gose.

I am on another Coup de Boule adventure with this as my seCANd beer and my only entry for The CANQuest (tm) during this go-'round.

From the CAN: "Tart*Tangy*Pink!"; 'Sour Ale brewed with Sea Salt, Coriander and Hibiscus Flowers".

I began by gently agitating the beer while still in the CAN since it was a Wheat beer at its base & therefore some haze would be allowable. Once the vent was Crack!ed open, an inverted Glug was the next step, raising just over a finger of fizzy, foamy, pinkish-white head with modest retention, quickly becoming wisps. Color was a pinkish-Amber (SRM = N/A) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a pronounced salty tartness, very evocative of my time as a sailor. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but not terribly far removed, either. The labeling of the CAN was somewhat CANtridictory - was it "tart" or was it "sour"? The former causes one's lips to purse while the latter settles in the hinges of one's jaw & sends a tingle up & under the ears. The beer was not assertive in either direction, only lightly puckering & not really all that sour, either. The taste was definitely salty and the hibiscus gave it a light, flowery, perfuminess, but I was not really getting much from the coriander. Finish was light, dry & refreshing, but it just seemed to lack the qualities that would make a well-made beer in this style memorable.

Pretty, light, decent mouthfeel. Kind of boring taste, not enough hibiscus.

A very pretty pinkish orange With a modest head. Not very sour or sweet, but lots of interesting flavors. Flower & grain flavor with a cracker finish. Moderate carbonation.
